and cbs to not mention the issue at all, not to mention -- they didn't mention cas andra perkin's name or javon belcher's name. there was oblique reference to the suicide before the game. fox chose not to mention it at all. the fact that on nbc obvious costas had a real discussion about it, i thought, was brave and admirable, specifically because i don't think fox realized to not talk about it is a political choice, too. you are saying something about perspective, something about the value of human life all of that being said he had 90 seconds to say whatever he could say about the issue. but, if i would have had those 90 seconds, i am not sure that's the key issue for a very simple reason. the problem is certainly gun culture in the broad senses. there is a huge gun culture in the national football league. if a person wants one, they are going to get one legally, illegally, what-have-you. this is an issue more about the national football league and their accountability. there is a small part of me that thinks in the league offices they are breathing a sigh
